Elton John’s musical legacy is being celebrated with a new stamp collection. Royal Mail has announced a new set of stamps marking Elton’s 50 years in show business, making Elton only the second solo artist to receive the honor.
The collection includes 12 stamps, eight of them featuring the music legend’s most popular album covers, like 1972’s “Honky Chateau” and “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road.” The other four stamps will commemorate some of his iconic live performances, including his legendary concert at Los Angeles’ Dodger Stadium in 1975 and his stop at New York’s Madison Square Garden on last year’s “Farewell Brick Road” tour.
“To say I was surprised when Royal Mail got in touch is an understatement,” says Elton in a statement. “Never did I think I’d appear on a stamp…it’s wonderful, a great honor.”
